Everything seems to be VS this VS that these days.

Well, Ivan Brandon has announced this as the title to his new Image comic with Secret Wars artist Esad Ribic. All about the changing dynamic of how people fight, and coming out in the autumn… with Esad building a brand new world from scratch.


He's good at that.

A story about privatised war, it sees the main character goes from greatest warrior to a failing one, only for the public to love him more as a failure.

Brandon also announced a new series writtenwith Jason Latour, and drawn by Greg Hinkle and Matt Wilson called Black Cloud. Described by Latour as "Jessica Jones meets Jessica Rabbit" about "our dreams at war" and how imagination is literal and those with the best imagination at war, win.
